Newborn Metabolic Screening - SD Dept. of Health

Newborn Metabolic Screening - SD Dept. of Health


The goal of newborn blood spot screening is to identify newborns at risk for life-threatening
and debilitating conditions that would otherwise not be detected until damage has occurred,
and for which intervention and/or treatment can improve the baby's outcome.

South Dakota Codified Law 34-24-17 through 34-24-25 and Administrative Rules of South Dakota 44:19 require all newborns to be screened for certain metabolic, inherited and genetic disorders.
Newborn Screening is a system coordinated by the South Dakota Department of Health in collaboration with hospitals, laboratories, health care professionals and families. The contract newborn screening laboratory for South Dakota is the State Hygienic Laboratory at the University of Iowa (SHL).
